Report: Olmert plans to remove Peretz
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has decided to remove his defense minister, Amir Peretz, two TV stations reported Thursday.
Channel 2 speculated that Peretz would not be offered the finance portfolio, currently occupied by Avraham Hirschson from Olmert's Kadima Party.
A Dahaf poll conducted for the Knesset Channel on Wednesday found that 45 percent of Israelis would appreciate Olmert more if he would remove Peretz from his post. Only four percent said they would not appreciate such a move.
